Taking advantage of Maryland’s late season resident goose season I have not waterfowl hunted much this hunting season. The schedule seemed to accommodate chasing whitetails more than goose hunting. At some point last week, I realized I still had time to get out and enjoy a goose hunt or two. The Maryland late season resident … Continue reading »

Road Trip – Flagpole Knob

So yeah, I had never been to Flagpole Knob in Virginia. Well, that was until last weekend, when after hearing so much about this “awesome” place to go wheel’n, I tossed a sandwich and drinks into the Tacoma and took a Sunday drive.

Choosing The Right Vehicle

  The topic of which vehicle do I buy for an overlanding vehicle has been popping up regularly in a few Facebook groups I follow and the answers always seem to be something like, “I’ve got XYZ and it is the best for overlanding, you should get one just like me.” Thing is, the commenter’s needs and … Continue reading »
